Accessibility - Propose an error prevention when filling fields [RESOLVED]


I am currently working on the global accessibility of my site to make life easier for my users. I use Gravity Forms to create my different contact forms.

I had a question that would be really useful in terms of accessibility. Is it possible to propose an error prevention when changing the field. For example, if a person puts characters in the form of letters in the phone number field. The same when the user enters a URL but the form does not notice a domain name associated with the URL. The best thing would be that this happens as soon as the field is filled in and not just at the very end once the user clicks on the “Submit” button. Do you have any recommendations on this subject?

I hope I’ve made myself clear, don’t hesitate if you need more information.

I wish you all a great year 2022!


Hi Brendan. You are looking for live validation or client-side validation. That is not currently a feature of Gravity Forms, but there are jQuery libraries that can be added as a customization, to enable that. Here’s one, for example:

Also, if you would like to suggest that for inclusion to Gravity Forms in the future, I recommend adding that to our product roadmap. Click the blue :heavy_plus_sign: in the lower left on this page to add a note for our product team:

Thank you.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your answer, I added a note for the roadmap.
Otherwise following your advice, I dug and I saw that a module linking Grvaity Form to jQuery Validation existed. Here is the link

I’ll try it and see if it meets my needs, then I’ll buy it potentially. Anyway thanks for the lead you gave me.
